Men's volleyball club
sweeps first tn-match
deal vs. Oakland U
by Wendy Law
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's swim-
ming and diving team approached
Friday's dual meet with Oakland
University like a card game. The
Wolverines shuffled their lineup, but
still dealt the Pioneers a 167-118
With this victory, the Wolverines
now go to 3-2 Big Ten, 6-4 overall.
Michigan assistant coach Chrissi
Rawak explained why several
Wolverines were not occupying their
normal clots in the lineup.
"It was a good way to begin the
year - especially after a high-pres-
sured meet like Northwestern,"
Rawak said. "We were able to give
(the swimmers) the opportunity to
choose what they wanted to swim
and to give them a chance to race a
different stroke and stay off their
main stroke. Basically, I would sum
up the meet as a good opportunity
Senior Kirsten Silvester won the
100 butterfly with a time of :59.20.
Juniors Kathy Deibler, Amy Bohn-
ert, and Tara Higgins took first in
the 100 and 200 freestyle (:53.31,
1:54.56), the 200 butterfly
(2:15.52), and the 500 freestyle
A trio of sophomores also earned
victories for the Wolverines. Jennifer
Almeida took the 1000 freestyle in
10:29.06. Melissa Harris won the
100 breaststroke with a time of
1:08.25. Lara Hooiveld placed first
in the 200 breaststroke in 2:20.27.
The Wolverine divers also took
both the one-meter and three-meter
events. Sophomore Jennifer Rotondo
won the one-meter with a score of
163.50. Senior and tri-captain
Margie Stoll took the three-meter
event with 190.30 points.
The Wolverines also had some
unexpected performances at the meet
by two swimmers competing in off-
"There were some surprises,"
Rawak said. "Jennifer Zakrajsek,
she's a breaststroker. She swam the
100 back really well. [She beat] her
best time by probably five seconds.
Missy McCracken swam the 200
breaststroke, which she never swims
either. She got second in the event
with 2:31.01, which was a really re-
spectable time for a non-breaststro-
Zakrajsek even surprised herself.
"I was very happy with [my per-
formance]," Zakrajsek said. "I don't
swim the 100 back very often at all.
It was good for me to swim well in
the 100 back because my backstroke
,is weak. I've been working on it in
practice. I guess it's paying off."
Zakrajsek said that the lineup
changes kept the Wolverines inter-
ested in an otherwise nondescript
"It made it a lot of fun," Zakra-
jsek said. "People got to swim
things that they don't normally get
to swim - things that they wanted
to swim. It was nice."
The Wolverines now begin prepa-
rations for their Jan. 22-23 match-up
at Big Ten rival Purdue. However,
the upcoming Big Ten Champi-
onships are not far from their
"There's not much you can do
right now," Rawak said. "They've
worked hard, and you can't really do
much more with four weeks out.
You can't make your season in four
weeks;unfortunately. All the prepa-
ration was done earlier. Now we're
just working on the little things."

"Never say die," was written all
over their faces. They saw light at
the end of the tunnel. They were the
cardiac kids. Looking for a recovery,
a revival ... a comeback.
Comeback is exactly what the
Michigan men's volleyball team (2-
0 overall) did in its opening tri-
match meet with Indiana and
Bowling Green Saturday night.
Led by junior starter Soren Juul,
who had a hitting efficiency of over
.300 in every game, the Wolverines
overcame a 2-1 game deficit in their
first match against a scrappy Indiana
team. Later, they outplayed Bowling
Green after losing the first game.
Whenever a comeback is immi-
nent their must be a turning point.
"(Volleyball) is a game of mo-
mentum and it is up to the team and
the coach to break the other team's
momentum," Michigan co-coach
Pamela Griffin said Saturday night.
The turning point of the first
match came in the fourth game with
Indiana ahead, 10-7. After a time-
out, Michigan regrouped and finished
out the game on an 8-0 run which
was highlighted by a defensive dis-
play of diving digs and solid blocks.
Griffin's troops continued their
hot streak with a 4-0 jumpstart in
the deciding, sudden-death format,
game five. Indiana never recovered,
and the Wolverines won the game
A relieved Griffin said, "Indiana
is a good team. It just says a lot for
the maturity of our players to dig it
out one point at a time. Most
young teams are expected to start out
slow; I just didn't expect (a lapse) in
the middle of the match."
In the third match, the Wolve-
rines faced an angry Bowling Green
team which had just lost to Indiana
in the second match at the Intramural
The Falcons came out strong
with an impressive 9-0 run which
gave them an 11-2 advantage and an
eventual 15-9 victory in game one.
Then, the light at the end of the tun-
nel seemed to dim when Michigan
faced a 14-10 deficit in game two.
But through another solid defen-
sive hold the Wolverines stole the

game from the Falcons' talons, 18-
16. Michigan closed out the match
laboriously with a pair of 15-8 wins
in the next two games with consis-
tent play and good passing.
"We're a young team and we
played really hard tonight," sopho-
more Stan Lee said. Lee is the only
returning starter from last year's 12-
5 team. "We're a little inexperienced,
but I think we'll win a lot more
games this season."
One striking statistic was thatin
every game the Wolverines won,
their hitting and blocking percent-
ages were high (above .300), a char-
acteristic of an experienced team.
"We still need to fine tune cer-
tain points of our game and pick up
our play a little," Griffin said. "I'm
proud of (the team). They hung in
there when the going got rough."
Michigan faces Notre Dame on
the road Friday and entertains Michi-
gan State at home Saturday.
Stan Lee eyes a set in one of last weekend's pair of Wolverine triumphs.
Lee, though only a sophomore, is Michigan's lone returning starter from
lastyear's 12-5 squad.
In 1966, Kansas City and Green Bay advanced to
Super Bowl I by winning their respective
conference championships on the road. Ironically,
the teams they beat were Buffalo and Dallas,
